Where are the recipes for the rest of the dish? I bought the grocery list before realizing that there is no explaination of what the sides are or how to cook them. I'm trying to figure out where the cauliflower and potatoes go in the week without waste recipes.
Why discard the necks and giblets? Save them for the stock you make in Dinner 3! That's the Fresh Vegetable Quinoa Bowl http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/fresh-vegetable-quinoa-bowl You could even put the chicken skin in, too, then refrigerate the stock and skim off any grease after it solidifies.
This is a variation of a roast chicken I've made for years. Mine has onion and no sage. But I wanted to try this as written and it came out wonderfully. I only made one chicken so halved the recipe. I also baked it for 1 hour and 40 minutes and it still could've used another 10 or so for the thigh meat to be completely pink-free. But it was moist and juicy and very tasty. The house smelled wonderful too. Will definitely make this again.
